Each week, students will follow Professor Lepus, their magical studies professor, on a magical journey to discover the story of a creature of legend. These creatures' origins range from ancient world mythology to the pages of contemporary fiction. We will learn the legendary stories of these creatures, go on safari to discover evidence of their existence, record notes and sketches in our field journal, and learn the guidelines for their care and feeding. Because of the nature of this...
Students will learn the stories and mythology of magical creatures from a variety of locations and time periods. Classes will also guide students in exploring the basics of observational note-taking (science!), guided drawing (art!), and -of course- allow them to exercise their creativity!
I'm a longtime teacher whose very favorite thing is interdisciplinary lesson experiences. My original idea for this class was to simply help my students learn how to draw magical creatures-- but then I thought, what if we could combine drawing with stories? And with history, and science? What if I could invent a fun, quirky character that would make learning more creative and immersive for my students? This class combines some of my very favorite things-- mythology, drawing, journaling, and creative exploration!
Optional enrichment activities will be provided for some lessons.
Students will need to purchase or construct a sketchbook journal. This will be used for writing notes/observations and for sketching. Students may work in pencil or pen, and may choose to add color if desired.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students who wish to be graded may submit photos of their journal pages each week. This is completely optional, but I would love to see the journal pages you create!
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some optional enrichment activities, such as kitchen activities (cooking), may require help from a parent.
